what are your impressions of Madden 2010?

I haven't bought a Madden game in about 10 years, mainly because I thought the good players were too good, and did very unrealistic things (ie: Randy Moss going up snagging a ball and proceeding to break 6 tackles and run for a 55 yard TD pass...which happened to be the last play I ever played on the Madden Franchise).

I'm toying with the idea of getting the 2010 game, but curious to get various people's impressions, what is the games strengths, weaknesses...and if it's worth getting to play.

Best places to get all the info you need. In these two threads you'll learn the good, the bad, and the ugly about the game.
I can't shave with my eyes closed. Meaning each day, I have to look at myself in the mirror and respect who I see.

I miss the old OS

There are two things you can't get back in this world; time and money. Spend both wisely

Re: what are your impressions of Madden 2010?

Okay, honestly... Without trying to bash EA too much, I will give you my honest opinion.

The game is a letdown. It plays pretty decent, but if you're big on running a realistic offline franchise, the game is just mentally and emotionally draining. Sim stats are completely jacked up. What's frustrating is EA used to be fairly decent at sim stats, but in Madden 2010, I've seen more than four running backs eclipse 2,000+ yards in a season, usually averaging 6.5-7.5 yards per carry. Sacks are another crazy stat.

Ratings do not seem to matter on the offensive line and I don't think it was addressed in the patch. You can literally put 3 WR's and 2 CB's on your offensive line and you won't see any dropoff in your running game. So, signing elite offensive lineman or drafting young studs is a waste... Spend the money elsewhere because OL play does not matter at all.

Tackles are broken as well... and this is a big one for me because I love playing defense. I've played a full season when the game first came out and my high tackler was Aaron Curry with 58 tackles.

If you're a casual gamer and care very little about realism, you'll probably like the game... but for us stat junkies and franchise lovers, it's a letdown.

It's a step up from some past versions but it's not enough and I believe EA knows it.

Re: what are your impressions of Madden 2010?

Countryboy gave you two good threads you should follow up with. I would also read the Patch 2 threads as well as that was the latest thread.

Bottomline, the game play has improved a great deal since patch #2. If you get bummed because of a few stats like sacks and ypc and a few 2009 yd rushers per season, then by pass the game or at least rent it to make your own decision.

By far, the best Madden on NG gameplay wise and presentation wise.
